FDLE offers tips for summer cyber safety
Upon reading this news that two Tampa Bay area men were arrested this week, accused of corresponding with an officer posing as the mother of a 14-year-old girl and suggesting a meeting between himself and the teen, it's timely that I also got a press release from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement on keeping children safe from online predators.
This month, children across the state have begun their summer vacations, and now have ample amounts of free time. Some of this free time will likely be spent on the computer. With this in mind, FDLE is asking for parents and guardians to open a dialogue with their children about computer safety.
Over the next three months, FDLE will be placing weekly tips on their Facebook page designed to protect their children and enhance their own computer safety. For more information regarding computer safety you can also visit secureflorida.org.
